If anyone can Canning can!
Ummmm....We had Mcarthur playing at 16. The kids played better than some of the players with over 100 pro games.
One of the most dire performances on record, feels like 2015 *second half* all over again. 10. I feel like a broken fucking record, this wingback system is SIMPLY SOMETHING WE CANNOT DO AS A TEAM ON A CONSISTENT BASIS. The space left in this system was punished in our last game vs Well and again in this half they had great success just lobbing down the wing.
Goal 1 - I know I have been harsh on Mcmann for his passing predominantly and defending secondary, this however was McMann at his best, terribly over hit ball at a terrible angle. IMO he simply is not good enough, when was the last time we had a competent LB?! Maybe a switch to a flat 4 with a sweeper could take some of the pressure from him but he just simply right now looks more like a championship player.
Donati - I've been a fan of him, however he was trying far too hard to be cute with a lot of his passing, when instead we needed him to be more of an aggressive ball winner.
2nd Goal, poor communication for the 200303939th time between Tomas/Gogic, both going for the same header, with poor covering for a cross and a lazy lunge from Gogic. No idea if the player made the most of it or not, but diving in when he was gonna struggle to get a show off is a sign of Gogic still learning to be a defender.
Rakish/Templeton, this is a failed experiment. Templeton and Rojano also prove to be very ineffective. I think Templeton should be dropped back to either a winger or a high attacking midfield. Templeton managed to get the ball to his feet a lot, however his slump in form is continuing, teams get wise to his trickery and just double up on him. Rakish tried but again with the last game, he was man marked by the human tank and unable to get much running going.
Lyon - Pointless, yet given a contract extension. Ferguson showed some good runs, however looks a mile off the pace.
I don't know what else to say, tactically Canning AGAIN fails to provide any answer. The wingback system was quickly becoming a flat 5 by the last 20 minutes, leaving any sort of counter attack not worth a pot of piss, with zero support on the wings.
Redmond - Why the fuck isn't he a started? He's the easy replacement for Ali.
Accies deserved fuck all, outwith Tomas *who made a tonne of great headed clearances* I couldn't name a player who looked worth the jersey. Fucking woeful, I felt robbed of my 15 quid
If the rumours are true that Ali/Doc are both leaving and that is the best squad we have, we look pretty fucked.
